Dr. Ron Worb, DVM
Since age 6, Dr. Ron Worb became focused on fulfilling his dream of becoming a veterinarian. After completing two years of pre-veterinary studies at the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Manitoba, he was accepted into the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan. He graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. After practicing at a number of small animal hospitals, he joined Anderson Animal Hospital in 1984. In February of 1988, Dr. Worb took over the practice from Dr. Ross Major who then retired in 1990.
Care, compassion and preventative wellness are all important to Dr. Worb and he brings this continuously to his practice of veterinary medicine. His special area’s of interest are Dermatology, Behavioral Medicine and Oncology/Cancer Care. He was proud of being asked to present a lecture at an American Association of Anxiety Disorders conference in San Diego. His topic 'Anxiety in Pets' was greeted with standing room only, which certainly proved there was a great deal of interest in his knowledge and insight.
Dr. Worb has a busy family life which include his wife, two teenage young adults and canine family member, April. Hockey and cycling are passions that come second only to his family and his profession. You may see him commuting to work on his bike between April and November. This is often interspersed with cycling tours around the province and across the ocean. Both playing and watching hockey (particularly the Jets!) is the other favorite pastime of Dr. Worb’s. This takes up the winter months when the bike is safely encased on its stationary trainer.
